Cops Play The Dirty Hippie Card

Well, finally the NYPD is using their trump card to get Occupy Wall Street protestors to clear out, the dirty hippy card.

From the NY Post:
The city’s top cop said today that the Occupy Wall Street protesters who clear out of Zuccotti Park tomorrow so their filthy makeshift campsite can get a much-needed cleaning can come back when the job is finished -- but they can’t take their tents, coolers and other gear with them.

“People will have to remove all their belongings and leave the park,” Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said, “After it’s cleaned, they’ll be able to come back. But they won’t be able to bring back the gear, the sleeping bags, that sort of thing will not be able to be brought back into the park.”

Pamplets were handed out to protestors by security guards hired by the park to inform them of the changes.
The order would put an end to the campout at the park that began on Sept. 17 -- but some of the protesters defiantly vowed not to leave the park as the city has ordered.

“The powers that be don’t like what’s happening, and it doesn’t surprise me,” one protester said this morning. “They’d do anything to get rid of us. But you don’t put yourself through all this if you’re not serious.”
Another young man shouted “We’re not leaving this park!” as cops walked by passing out fliers warning them to clear out.
Others said they would clean up the park themselves, and a few were already walking around with brooms and picking up garbage.

We'll see how this shit goes. I mean Occupy Wall Street is already spawning movements all over the country, but if the tent pole in NYC falls, the rest will probably weaken and splinter. We will see what happens when smelly hippies meet disinfectant. The protestors already have claimed they won't leave, but a few nightsticks and some mace will probably change their minds.
